Linking genotype to phenotype: the International Rice Information System (IRIS). uri icon

abstract

  • The International Rice Information System (IRIS, http://www.iris.irri.org) is the rice implementation of the International Crop Information System (ICIS, http://www.icis.cgiar.org), a database system for the management and integration of global information on genetic resources and germplasm improvement for any crop. Building upon the germplasm genealogy and field data components of ICIS, IRIS is being extended to handle diverse rice genomics data including: genetic mapping, genome annotation, genotype, mutant, transcripteome, proteome and metabolomic data. Users can access information in the database through stand-alone programs and WWW interfaces offering specialist views to researchers with different interests.
